Estimated Yield for Fruit Trees

For growers with enough space, where tree size isn’t an issue, this guide covers the estimated yield of dwarf, semi-dwarf, and standard size fruit trees.

* Please note that this list should only be used as an estimation tool to help with future expectations — it is by no means a guarantee. Planting location, weather, care and maintenance, tree maturity, varietal vigor/nature, and other variables all contribute to the overall yield, so this information is merely a guide. If your mature fruit trees have produced differently, please feel free to share in detail for other readers in the comments.
